, mr. dimon, who is head of the largest bank of the united states of america sits on the board, the regional, federal, new york board that regulates banks in that area is totally absurd. as you've indicated, six out of the nine members of the board are appointed by the banking industry, and that also makes no sense at all. so we've got to end the obvious conflicts of interest. we have to get people who are e beholden to the financial institutions off the regional set, and that's what i would suggest. >> what are your political prospects with this? >> i'll tell you the truth. i think if you ask the american people, do you think you should have bankers on the board that regulates the banking industry, i suspect 90% of the people would say, are you crazy? of course, you shouldn't. on the other hand, wall street is enormously powerful and we'll see how well we'll do. i think the key points here, dylan, is that three years -- four years ago, wall street drove this country into a horrendous recession through their greed, their recklessness and their illegal behavior. most americans
think it's unlikely that mr. clen is going to go back to the united states with secretary clinton. i think that would be something that the chinese would have strong objections to. in terms of the symbol of them fielding to pressure coming from the united states. that's something at this point in time with so much change in china, not only with leadership but on the ground with bo xilai and other corruption, they can't be in a position of showing weakness in the face of the united states. i doubt whether he'll be going back at this time. what might be possible is over the a period of time for the chinese to come to the conclusion that allowing him to travel to the united states and go into permanent exile with his family would be better for them since it would at least deflect attention on his activities which i'm sure he is going to try to continue as long as he's in china. i think at this point not much will happen over the long term they may find it in their interest to allow him to leave. >> at the same time, it really was clear that he initially told them, according to all of th
